1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    I am feeling quite nervous about doing my first posting.
    Not used to this kind of thing, Like you young whipper snappers.
    I am not sure if I am in the right place.
    Anyway can I ask you all a question.
    I have a HW35 and would like to put in a gas-ram.
    I have emailed theoben but as yet not had a reply.
    I was contemplating buying a pcp but when I wayed up the pros & cons.
    The amount of time that I am able to use the gun and the fact of how good the HW35 performs. I decided to remove the stock and smooth it down. (I am varnishing it at the moment).And tune it up to it's full glory.
    I love reading your forum and learning so much. "You are never to old to learn".

    Pity about that. Would of liked to put the strut in.

    In that case I think I will just make the 35 a good springer and buy a pcp for a change of gun. Probably the HW100 T.

    You cannot get a gas ram for the '35, the '80 yes but its very expensive.
    The '35 is one of my all time favourite classic rifles that, with a bit of careful tunning and a good quality spring can still hold its own with more modern springers.

    Hi chaps, first time posting for me on this forum, just got back into airguns, after a few years lay off, just got myself a bsa, lightening xl, 177, and fitted a v-mach tuning kit, it was a nice gun to start with, but now its even better, no twang from the spring whatsoever, and the recoil is a lot smoother, straight back into the shoulder, fullbore, get your 35 a v-mach kit mate, you wont regret it:)

    Hi

    Hi Fullbore,I bought a HW35J around the same time I gassed my 80. I asked about the 35 and they don't have one. They didn't say they couldn't though. I might phone them up again.(If I win the lottery):D
    The new gun is made a bit better than the older ones. If thats possible

    I have decided to keep the HW35 as it is. And stretched out and bought a second hand AA S410 carbine. I hope I will like it. I am going to use the divers bottle for top up. I am looking forward to have some fun with it.:up:
